Septic Tank Replacement: Is it Time?

A septic system can be a highly effective method of wastewater treatment that is done right on your own property. If you are having issues with your septic system, you will need septic professionals to help you determine if the issue is one worth fixing or if a replacement of one or all parts of the system is going to be more cost effective. Here at William Dustin Septic, we want to help you determine when or if the time is right for you to consider a septic tank replacement.

A septic tank replacement is an option that is necessary for most septic system owners at some point in the lifespan of a septic system. Because septic systems have a lifespan of around 40 years, it is helpful to know when exactly your septic tank was installed. If you have an older home and a septic tank that is original to the home, it might be time to start making room for a septic tank replacement in your budget considerations.

Another situation in which you might consider a septic tank replacement is if your septic tank capacity does not match your household’s current needs. A small tank is going to fill up faster and need to be pumped more often. If you are pumping your tank more than every 3 years, than a larger tank might be a good idea to better serve your needs.

The need for septic tank replacement is usually one that should be considered carefully. Our team of septic professionals would like to help you make this decision. For an unbiased and professional opinion, please contact us today.
